  3. Hello Steve I bid on that one but my offer was not accepted. I believe Its one of 4 that were supplied that year, I have one of the others. The VIN number looks good compared to mine and the military reg seems correct, in line with my numbers. I will try to help you with questions, what is the registration number? Cheers Steve (MACCDT)

  8. Hello Jeff had chance at the weekend to get to my trailer, attached is the Italian rebuilt plate and with your help, i uncovered the number stamped into the front dolly. FW 1245 Is there a register or serial number list for these trailers that have the FW numbers in?? cheers Steve MACC DT
  9. Hi The trailer i have is ex Italian i believe, back to the UK via Army Cars with the extra side extensions cut off. The only data plate is a small bronze on with the name of the overhaul firm from Italy on it in 1963, so I to, am very interested if there is a serial number stamped on the chassis and where to look. Picture attached, if anyone can assist, that would be great (ignore the body, not dead, just looking for a serial number) Steve MACCDT

  14. Hello I am taking my Diamond T 981 from South Manchester to Normandy for two weeks in May/June and I am looking for assistance / possible storage for the 6 weeks between arriving back in Portsmouth and War and Peace Revival show as I don't really want to bring it all the way back to Macclesfield. if you have any suggestions or contacts to move the vehicle or a possible storage area where I can drive to I would welcome any assistance as this matter as it may be the only opportunity I can get to go to a show in Kent with my vehicle. Thanks in advance Steve MaccDT:drive:
  15. Hello Harper did you buy one of you DT's from Manchester?? it was fitted with a 205 ltr steel drum as a fuel tank on top of the standard tank? if so, I met the man who originally restored this Diamond T whilst at the Victory Show at Cosby in 2013. he showed me his pictures of the DT from finding the lorry in a field without a cab to pictures attached. it was then sold down to a gent near Bristol and then to the Helicopter museum at Weston super Mare I believe before it came up to Manchester. Hope of interest, always nice to know a little history Steve MaccDT

  20. Now in Carlisle, the wrecking gear was cut off and a ballast body refitted, this has since been removed and Holmes wrecking gear refitted. the easy way to spot this one through the years are the two large weights welded into the front bumper. i have seen it in blue, red (at the dorset steam fair) then green when in Essex and now yellow All the best Steve S1TPM
